What are you doing here
Can’t you see the right lane is perfectly clear
You’re doing 45 with your trailer full of hay
I’d do 60 in my Kia if you’d just get out my way

The left lane’s for passing
The right lane’s for asses like you
Who’re hitting 55 and turning on the cruise
The left lane is for me and the right lane is for you

If your truck’s a mile high
You shouldn’t drive on this side and I think you know why
If you don’t care when you get there that’s totally okay
But I’m here to speak for those of us who haven’t got all day

You’re on time, you’re 105
You drive a combine
Pull an equine trailer, tractor, cadillacker
Box truck, log truck, dump truck, what the fuck
Take your freight from state to state
Hey it’s all great don’t mean to hate
On your Florida license plate
The rest of us are late
